What is a Building Management System?

A building management system (BMS) is a computer-based control system installed in commercial buildings. It is used to control and monitor the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment, such as ventilation, lighting, alarms, power systems, fire systems, and security systems.

They can help to improve a building’s energy efficiency and reduce running costs. BMS systems are also used to provide building occupants with a comfortable environment, more control, and to ensure the building complies with health and safety regulations.

What Are the Benefits of Building Management Systems?

There are many benefits of building management systems, but some of the most common benefits include:

  • Better security: Many systems allow you to monitor the security systems within your business. This can include CCTV, access control, and intruder alarms.
  • Reduced energy consumption: By monitoring and controlling the building’s mechanical and electrical equipment, you can reduce your energy consumption and lower your bills by up to 15-20%.
  • Improved comfort levels for occupants: BMS systems can be used to regulate heating, lighting, and ventilation to provide a comfortable environment for building occupants.
  • Greater control: With a building management system, you can have greater control over your building’s systems and equipment. You can also access information about the building’s performance and energy consumption.

As technology improves, BMS systems are becoming much more mainstream. What’s more, the fact that they can potentially provide savings for a business makes them a smart long-term investment.

What Is a Trend BMS?

Trend is a Building Energy Management Systems provider focusing on energy and electricity systems. The company offers a comprehensive building management solution that is designed to provide better energy efficiency and improve comfort levels for occupants.

The system can be used to control the building’s heating and electrical systems.

Building Management Systems Maintenance

BMS systems, including building energy management systems, require regular maintenance. Though there are no regulations regarding BMS maintenance, it is your responsibility to keep employees and customers safe.

We recommend that building management systems are serviced at least once a year to ensure they are operating correctly and to check for any faults.

BMS servicing varies depending on your system but can include:

Regular inspections

Regular inspections of the BMS components, such as sensors, actuators, controllers, and servers, are necessary to ensure that they are functioning correctly. Any issues or faults are identified and corrective actions are taken promptly.

Cleaning and lubrication

Dirt and debris can accumulate on BMS components, which can impair their performance. Regular cleaning and lubrication are necessary to keep the system operating correctly.

Firmware and software updates

BMS components are controlled by firmware and software. Regular updates are necessary to ensure that they are up to date and function correctly. These updates should be performed by a qualified technician or service provider.


BMS sensors, controllers, and other components require calibration to ensure that they provide accurate readings and control signals. Regular calibration is necessary to maintain system accuracy and reliability.

Backup and recovery

BMS data is critical to the building’s operation. Regular backups of BMS data mean that data will not be lost in the event of a system failure. Recovery procedures are in place for restoring BMS data.

Performance testing

BMS components must be tested regularly to ensure that they are performing according to their specifications. Testing can include functionality testing, load testing, and performance testing.

Building Management Systems FAQs

A Building Management System (BMS) is an automated control system that manages and monitors a building’s mechanical and electrical equipment such as HVAC (heating, ventilation, and air conditioning), lighting, power systems, fire systems, and security systems. It helps improve building efficiency, comfort, and safety.

A BMS improves energy efficiency by automating the control of building systems based on occupancy, time schedules, and environmental conditions. It optimises energy usage by reducing wastage, monitoring system performance, and providing data analytics for better energy management.

Yes, a BMS can be integrated with various other systems including fire safety, security, and energy management systems. This integration allows for comprehensive control and monitoring from a single platform, enhancing the overall efficiency and safety of the building.

The benefits of installing a BMS include reduced energy consumption, lower operating costs, improved occupant comfort, enhanced safety, and extended equipment life. It also provides valuable insights into building performance, enabling proactive maintenance and better decision-making.

Regular maintenance is essential for the optimal performance of a BMS. It is recommended to have at least an annual service, though more frequent inspections might be necessary depending on the system’s complexity and usage. Regular maintenance ensures reliability and efficiency​​.

BMS maintenance involves inspecting and calibrating sensors and controllers, updating firmware and software, cleaning and lubricating components, and performing performance tests. Regular maintenance helps identify potential issues before they become significant problems​.

The costs for BMS maintenance in the UK can vary widely depending on the system’s size and complexity. Basic maintenance can start from around £1,000 per year, while comprehensive service packages, including emergency callouts and remote monitoring, can range up to £5,000 per year or more​.

Yes, a BMS can assist with regulatory compliance by ensuring that building systems operate within specified parameters, thereby meeting energy efficiency standards and safety regulations. It can also generate reports necessary for compliance documentation.

A BMS can be beneficial for various types of buildings including commercial offices, hospitals, educational institutions, retail spaces, and residential complexes. Any building that requires efficient management of its mechanical and electrical systems can benefit from a BMS.

The installation time for a BMS depends on the size and complexity of the building and the systems being integrated. Small systems can be installed in a few weeks, while larger, more complex installations can take several months. Planning and design are critical for a smooth installation process.
